I will once again be taking part in Yoga Reaches Out to raise funds for Boston Children's Hospital benefiting their Wellness Program & Every Child Fund. Thanks to all of your support last year I was able to raise over $1,000 for these programs working to bring comfort to families coping with a sick child, and fund critical services not covered by insurance, like housing for families traveling far for care. My goal is to surpass that $1,000 raised by any amount this year.
In last year's letter I extended my sentiment of how much comfort the Wellness Program would have brought my family when my sister was there 14 years ago. Now this year, through that same program, I've been given the opportunity to start teaching one-on-one yoga classes to outpatients of Boston Children's Hospital in my area. I can tell you from my experience that the employees and services supported by Yoga Reaches Out are nothing short of amazing and are committed to bettering their young patients' lives on much more than a medical level. I know my efforts are in the right spot, and I thank you for continuing to support my involvement and fundraising for Boston Children's Hospital. As everything, it takes a village and any contribution is deeply appreciated by myself, my family, and the organization.
Impact of your donation:
$30 - Twenty-six infant-sized masks to deliver anesthesia
$50 - Three child home safety kits for low-income patient families
$100 - One group yoga class for patient parents
$250 - One week of housing so families can stay near the hospital
$500 - Five kid-sized Fitbits for diabetes research
$1,000 - Reiki training for 10-12 nurses or child life specialists
Love & Namaste, Jen xo
I'm participating in Yoga Reaches Out because I want to help Boston Children's Hospital continue its amazing work for kids and families. During this day-long yogathon, more than 1,000 yogis will come together for an inspirational day of yoga, music, and fundraising - all to help bring peace and healing to others.
Support me in helping give strength to familes coping with a sick child.
